Connecting Classrooms Update

We have been busy working alongside our friends from Golden Dove Primary School.

Here are some of the things we have been doing:

  • Two of our 2020/21 Pupil Council members made this <<video>> of our school. We then shared it with our Ugandan link school – Golden Dove Junior School. They then shared some <<photos>> of their school garden and the children tending to it. We had to Google what some of the vegetables were!

  • We have been learning how to build our resilience using the ‘Building Resilience’ whole school program. Our 2020/21 Pupil Council interviewed our Ugandan link school’s Head Teacher, Aisha Matovu, about what lockdown was like for her and how she demonstrated resilience throughout it. The Ugandan schools have largely been closed for 2021 and are still closed as of December 2021. You can view part of this interview <<HERE>>

  • Golden Dove Junior School in Ugandan sent us some letters describing their experience of lockdown. They’re so interesting as their lack of access to the internet has made their educational experience extremely different to ours. Please do have a read of them HERE. Our wonderful P5/6 class then replied trying to show empathy and awareness and sharing some of their personal experiences.
